    I have been working at HCL Technologies full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Compensation has been best of career; travel opportunities have been pretty good. Knock on wood remote opportunities in both accounts to date. Some Indian DIAMONDS of high competence, high performance persons. Thanks to the last account directors ignorance of Resource Allocation System, have had a couple months on bench chargeable to the prior account (shrug - I was on call to help and trained my replacement well before the down time).

    Cons

    Worthless HR. MUCH incompetence among India-based PMs. Culture of Indians dumping work off on Americans, blaming Americans for their errors, and refusing to provide timely information. Extremely dense bureaucracy and culture of plausible and inplausible deniability. No interest from management to help us leverage intranet tools for career development. Lots of unanswered emails to HR. Extreme "stove piping" and folks who know nothing outside their one little role. Company moved multiple jobs to Cary to support a new building (pointless and sabotaged quality of life).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire your ENTIRE internal HR department, and out-source your entire HR organization to a US based sub... even for your India based employees! Keep on with the emails about cultural differences to explain US and Indian cultural psychologies (it HELPS!). Radically improve Career development resources.
